NABU's 2016 results in key figures and schemes

2016 was the first full year of the NABU’s work. Looking back, it is hard to believe that we entered it with only 70 detectives and 50 criminal proceedings registered. Within the following 12 months we, together with Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office, already managed to return 115 mln UAH to the state enterprises’ accounts, to prevent more than half a billion UAH public funds embezzlement, to destroy a set of large-scale corruption schemes. As of beginning of February 2017 we have sent more than 50 cases to court and already have 12 convictions. 176 detectives are already in Bureau’s team and we hope that soon the unit will be staffed completely.
